The other day when I shared my recipe for my Crockpot Potato Soup, I was talking about how much I love sharing food. How much joy it brings me. As it turns out, I ended up sharing the third go of that recipe the same day it went up on the blog. (It is possible I’m a perfectionist and had to make sure it was just right before sharing it with all of you.) So, my wonderful neighbors were the recipients of that soup and sent me text messages that night telling me how much they loved it for dinner. It made me so happy . . . exactly what I had been talking about in the blog post. And today, I’m sharing this delicious Hot Reuben Dip Recipe with you that is courtesy of another neighbor. She is the same amazing neighbor who shared the Mandarin Orange Cake Recipe with me. I just love her. She truly gets my love of cooking.

Easy Reuben Dip Recipe

So this recipe, that comes from my sweet neighbor, is perfect just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. Though my dear mom loved a great Reuben Sandwich year round and probably would have dug into this dip any time it was put out. If you share her love of sauerkraut and corned beef, you are going to totally dig on this amazing dip. My neighbor’s rendition of it is done in the crockpot, but if you don’t have a small slow cooker, you can just as easily do it up in the oven.

Five Ingredient Hot Reuben Dip

Yup! You read that right! This delicious appetizer recipe is only FIVE ingredients! It simply could not be easier.

  • mayonnaise (feel free to substitute light here, it will work just as well)
  • thousand island dressing
  • sauerkraut (drained)
  • swiss cheese
  • deli corned beef

Making Reuben Dip in the Crock Pot

This is such a great easy way to make this recipe for a party. You can just throw all the ingredients in the crock pot two hours before your party and then walk away. Finish prepping your other party food, clean up the house, I don’t know, take a shower if you are like me and haven’t managed that yet this week. And then your Reuben Dip will be nice and hot when your party starts and stay that way during it.

For this recipe you will need a small 1 1/2 quart crock pot. It will seem like all of your ingredients aren’t going to fit in there, but they are. You will be fine. And so will your dip.

If you can’t wait two hours for this amazing dip recipe, then of course just throw all of the ingredients in a square baking dish and pop it in the oven. You will have a steaming hot reuben dip in just 25 minutes. I’m not going to lie, I think this is a totally acceptable dinner option.

What to Serve with Reuben Dip

This recipe would be great with any hearty cracker. I served it with Ritz crackers. But I reeeeealllly wanted to serve it with rye chips (my store was out). It would be great put out with those little rye breads too.

    I think the dip is a little too bland. Next time, I will roast some caraway seeds and add them after the recipe is cooked.
